Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - Get ready for the Snow Boom!

Old Man Winter starts shaking the Snow Globe next week and WBEN 7 First Alert Meteorologist Andy Parker says, looking ahead, there's an 85-90% chance of a WHITE Christmas this year.

Parker is tracking the entire month of December.  Big changes are a week away.

"Batten down the hatches this weekend.  It's the last weekend with temperatures in the 40's.  Monday will be a bonus day, Tuesday is wet and then the Winter Bomb drops on Western New York" said Parker.

It looks like the first real lake effect event of the season. Parker says it will be a multi-day event from next Thursday through next Saturday. 

Will we need shovels or snow blowers?  "Both" answered Parker.  "It's a legitimate lake effect event".

If you were waiting for the real switch-over to Winter, Parker says the pattern changes next week. 

"The two middle weeks of December are going to be the coldest we've seen.  "That means the chance for a White Christmas is about 85-90% right now". 

Here's Andy's breakdown of the month ahead:
